Between salt, allergies, and good old-fashioned crying jags, our under-eyes can take quite a beating in one day. It doesn’t really matter the cause, when I look in the mirror and see puffy eyes, I want to curl up and take a nap – not always feasible.
Clinique must have heard my silent cries for help, because they produced their new All About Eyes De-Puffing Eye Massage ($25.50 at clinique.com.) Physically, the metal ball of the roll-on applicator cools the eye area, while the chemicals like amentoflavone, humulus lupulus extract, and caffeine in the serum calm and soothe irritated skin. The compact container makes for easy portability, and my eyes felt better immediately. It’s like carrying a nap in my purse. Not quite as restful as the real thing, but definitely better for my career and social life.
